First Impressions of the Air Hammer
The Mueller-Kueps Vibro-Impact Air Hammer is BIG (in a good way). The first thing Cam said, and we quote: “That’s the biggest hammer bit I’ve ever seen.”
First impressions? He fell in love with its skookum design. But will it work?
Initial Plans and Adjustments
The perfect scenario to use the big chooch emerged upon discovering slop in the bearing of an excavator final drive whose bolts seized up.
Cam decided to rip out the whole thing and take it to the shop.
The Mueller-Kueps Vibro-Impact Air Hammer quickly blew those seized bolts out.
Testing the Air Hammer
Cam tried the Vibro-Impact Air Hammer in the shop to separate the rusted bearings. He was amazed at the force of this tool.
How powerful is this air-impact hammer? It delivers a constant pressure of 6.2 bars at a rate of 2,500 BPM! Do you understand what it means?
Picture an average person delivering 2,500 blows, each with 100 lb of power, within a minute with a sledgehammer without getting tired.
The hammer kicks hard. You’ll need some strength and both hands to hold it in place.
Other Uses of the Air Hammer
What else can you do with the Vibro-Impact Air Hammer?
We have used it to split up the housing of some final drives.
A particular task we like doing with this tool is plowing out pin tracks instead of using regular hammers. Recently, we had a 2” track pin seized up in place. Cam took it out using one of the smaller tip chisels.
Benefits Over Traditional Tools
The main advantage of the Vibro-Impact Air Tool over traditional hammers is the ability to get the job done in places where the lack of space wouldn’t let you swing a big sledgehammer.
Regarding other air hammers, the extra side handle design of the Vibro-Impact Air Hammer makes this tool more stable leading to higher efficiency.
Overall Review & Final Thoughts
The Vibro-Impact Air Hammer does what Mueller-Kueps claim: deliver high power to make heavy-duty jobs easier, even in tight spaces.
Cam likes big tools and has years of experience with all sorts. Cam is an honest guy. If the tool sucked, he would spit it out on camera (he tends to be too honest). He’ll buy it for sure.
